Richard Keys, football genius

There is a delicious irony in the fact that Sky's sexist broadcaster Richard Keys, along with Andy Gray, predicted that Sian Massey would need the offside rule explaining to her before running the line at Wolves-Liverpool.

First, Massey made a crucial call on the first Liverpool goal, which appeared a mile offside in real time, but which on replays was clearly valid. A game-changing decision, that she got right under tremendous pressure.

The second irony is that Keys, despite his macho posturing, actually had the body hair on his knuckles lasered a few years back at the request of his producers. Maybe that's why he got so mad at Karren Brady.

Remember Ron Atkinson?
